    It's two ******* hours of comedy, for poop's sake.

    Go get mad at the Dark Knight trailer for revealing the movie's villain.

    Even if it has Lucas ruinage in it there will have to be some great Spielberg creations and some great Ford deliveries. It will be sad if it can't be better than Temple of Doom (which was still loads of fun).

    The trailer sure didn't show anything worthwhile at all. All it did was play the nostalgia card over and over and over. The same thing was done with the TPM trailers. I doubt even Speilberg can save it.

    It should also be noted that I've never been able to stay awake through an Indy flick. There is aways a point where the flick screeches to a halt.

    My inner geek is at "cautiously optimistic" at this point re: Indy 4.

    Honestly though, the review I am dying to read is from Bosh. There's not a bigger Indy fan on the planet; seriously. You folks may not know it cause he's Mr. Star Wars to you...but the dude's a supergeek for Indy too.

    Apparently [link=http://www.nba.com/bulls/news/lottery_080520.html]miracles[/link] do happen! A 1.7% chance and you get it? They better not frak this up! I'm sick of Chicago sports coming so close then crapping out or doing something stupidly insane. (and yes I remember 2005...stop rubbing it in my face)

    Has anyone here received their economic stimulus package yet? According to my last 2 digits of my SS number, I should've gotten it 2 weeks ago. I'm hoping for it before I leave on the honeymoon.

    My girlfriend got a letter stating that since she had her online filing fees taken out of her refund she would be getting a manual check instead of the direct deposit she should have. I figured I was in the same boat. We both used TurboTax, filed online, and had the fee pulled out of the refund.

    Apparently the IRS was supposed to tell people that, but forgot because they were "up all night jacked up on Dew and Ho-Ho's and [they're], like, completely wasted this morning. Sorry, dude."

    Oh yeah...well, we got $936.00 instead of the nationally hyped $1,200 per couple. Anything they can do to screw the working person....of course in my case I don't work.

    I'm not a big fan of his more popular movies as a director ("Tootsie", in particular, is criminally overrated), but he also made "3 Days of the Condor" and was a producer on a lot of very good films over the years.

    Hey, kids! Here's a quote from the Bible:

    "A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord." - Deuteronomy 23:2


    You wouldn't censor The Word, now would you?

    Your image on censorship was blacked out. How very Zen of you. :)

    I didn't say "bastards", I said "Bat-sards"...which was in line with the Batman conversation it referred to. Batman is in the bible so I don't know why the board censors are so upset about my referring to him.

    Turns out she edited a message of mine just above, as well. I must've mentioned the existence of alcohol or the possibility that the world isn't a shiny happy place that's 100% safe for 8-year-olds.

    Now's as good a time as any to bring up my idea for a Chicago Force Hardcore Barely Legal Ungulate Porn Club...

    I'm less disgusted by being censored by a high school student and more-so disgusted by being censored by someone who writes Star Wars fan-fic. I knew this place had no standards, but that's just insulting.
    Oh well, I'm sure she was asked to come in and do the "dirty work" by our actual moderator. Spinelessness and self-righteousness are key elements to modding. Ummmm..of course I mean now...not back in the golden era of FanForce.

    I am so out of who is our RSA. I thought Mirax was one, but now I only sear Earwen (and for some reason I thought it was Minancia who co-RSAed). I seriously doubt Earwen had anyone do 'dirtywork'. I think NY just saw the naughtiness and went for it. Or, she thought, hey boshtalk is a movie snob, I'm going to put a bee in his bonnet.
